A new approach to the study of the spontaneous emission of the quantum system driven by a high-intensity laser field is developed. This approach is based on the accurate consideration of quantum system interaction with vacuum quantized field modes in the first order of perturbation theory, while the intense laser field is considered classically beyond the perturbation theory which allows to observe any-order stimulated processes governed by classical field. The proposed approach is applied to the study of a number of quantum systems in intense laser field. The obtained data are compared with those obtained in the frames of semiclassical approximation typically used for analyzing of the strong-field dynamic. It is found that the applicability of the semiclassical approach is strictly limited. It is valid for calculation of transitions to the initially populated state only if the population of this state is close to unity during the pulse and in the after-pulse regime. If its population is depleted, the semiclassical approach fails.
